"He gives his harness bells a shake" an onomatopoeia?

onomatopoeia

yes it is an onomatopoeia because shake does not only pertain to bells but to also a movement therefore it is an onomatopoeia.

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 02/29/2016 - 02:32
No actually, it's not

An onomatopoeia refers to a word whose pronounciation sounds like an actualy sound. it has nothing to do with an action. 'Shake" is an action, therefore not a sound. Also 'shake' does not sound like a sound. An example of an onomatopoeia would be 'the TINKLING of the bells', 'BOOM!', 'Crunch.', 'creak', 'fizz', 'buzz', 'smack' etc.

In a poem about a sloth:

A most Ex-as-per-at-ing Lug.

( the sloths are slow so it's pronounced slowly --> Ex-as-per-at-ing )
